This is quite soon, then.
I'm off to Paris a week today, staying in Saint Quentin on the Friday and Saturday nights (stupidly booked this when we thought the start was the same as 2015, but then they changed it and we didn't get our arses in gear enough to book somewhere closer to Rambouillet).
I'm feeling alright about everything, I think. It feels like A Big Deal which is quite unlike all the other audaxes I've done. Not worried about the riding bit of it; I know I can do that. It's wasting time at controls / eating enough / sleeping which is making me nervous.
